It`s fall and that means the weather gets colder and drier, which is not a very good combination for people with ezcema.
Ezcema is a condition on your skin where you suffer from severe peeling, cracking and dry skin. This is most prevalent in winter. You might have noticed that a lot of people with ezcema will have red patches of broken skin on their legs, arms especially around the fold of the elbow and back of their neck.
I have ezcema and mine gets pretty severe during fall and winter, but I make sure to take as much preventative action as possible as the last thing I want is for my skin to bleed out. Once it starts to peel, then it gets very hard to heal. Hey, that rhymes!
My pharmacist friend suggested Aveeno Oatmeal bath to me when I started to get itchy. It`s basically steel cut oats in powdered form without any preservatives. They also put some moisturizers in the powder so its not just oats. You run it in a bath tub and you soak in it for 15-20 minutes. This soothes out your skin and helps to protect it against peeling.
It`s 15 packets for $7.99. It`s expensive but it`s very useful for those with eczema and/or severely dry skin. Your bathroom will smell like oatmeal and you will be tempted to eat it, but don`t!
I generally use this bath about 3 times a week. My ezcema has been controlled through using lots of baby lotion, this body wash and using baby wash. Ever since I`ve switched to this regime, my skin has never peeled or cracked during winter.
Hope that helps!
